Summary

Ariel wasn't the only mermaid in the sea. 
Dive into a magical world beyond the seafoam where things aren't always what they seem: 
Deep in the ocean, where the water is green like the eyes of a wanton princess on a starless night, lives a Sea King and his loyal subjects. They live past any port or peer and could never be reached by man or even ship at sail. It is in this place—far beneath the emerald tarp that shields them from the sun that the Sea King's castle stands taller than all the coral reefs one could ever imagine—where magical tales commence. 
Here, in this place beneath the sea, one-of-a-kind flowers and plants sprout hope and colors human eyes have never seen. In this place, fish of every rainbow stripe flutter like butterflies through endless indigo leaves. But it isn't perfect. Even magical places have cave-like crevices of darkness and secrets too. 
Join bestselling and award-winning authors as they travel to a mystical world to tell the tales of merfolk both dark and beautiful.

    Owen Archer returns in a mesmerizing short story about the danger of false miracles and the treachery of true believers.
    
    Magda the Riverwoman has called Owen Archer to her island hut in the middle of the River Ouse with a special favor—to guard a jar of human bones. No one in York is greedier than the relic dealers, the insatiable charlatans who sell flesh and bone as miracle cures, but Magda will not sell the remains at any price. Instead, she asks Owen to protect the jar and keep one eye out for the dark figure that has been watching the island, waiting patiently for the right moment to strike…
    
    THE BONE JAR is sure to delight long-time fans of Candace Robb’s Owen Archer series and provide first-time readers with a gripping introduction to her beautifully rendered world of treachery and intrigue, set in medieval England.

    The third anthology in the annual series continues Catapult's landmark publishing partnership with PEN America and features the best debut short fiction published in the United States and Canada each year. PEN America will award the PEN/Robert J. Dau Short Story Prize for Emerging Writers prize of $2,000 to twelve winners, and Catapult will publish the dozen stories in a gorgeously designed anthology. 
    
    Each yearly anthology's winners are selected by three high-profile judges; stories for the 2019 edition will be chosen by Carmen Maria Machado (Her Body and Other Parties), Danielle Evans (Before You Suffocate Your Own Fool Self), and 2016 Whiting Award winner  Alice Sola Kim.
     
    Unique among comparative titles, each story in the PEN anthology is framed by an introduction by the publication's editor explaining why they nominated the story for the prize, giving writers who aspire to be published insight into the editors' thought processes.
    
    The first two volumes received well-deserved critical praise, and stories from the anthologies were featured in LeVar Burton Reads, Electric Literature, and The Rumpus.
    
    Catapult’s PEN America anthology is aspirational and inspirational for anyone working hard to be a writer, and a rare opportunity for debut short fiction writers to reach a wider audience; it appeals to MFA students, aspiring writers, and other lovers of literary fiction. 
    
    This anthology is not only a bold endorsement of fresh, raw, and risky new voices, but also a thoughtfully selected, deliberately arranged compendium for those wanting to know what's next in the literary world. 
    
    The support network for, awareness of, and enthusiasm for this book will continue to grow each year; the support 2019 authors, journals, and editors will build on the existing base of 2017 and 2018 contributors.

    In the hard-edged tradition of Hubert Selby Jr., Daniel Woodrell, and Donald Ray Pollock, and with the fresh, complex humanity of Breaking Bad and Reservoir Dogs, a blistering debut collection that unsparingly confronts the extreme, brutal parts of the human heart. 
    A man runs away from his grave and into a maelstrom of bullets and fire. A Hollywood fixer finds love over the corpse of a dead celebrity. A morbidly obese woman imagines a new life with the jewel thief who is scheming to rob the store where she works. A man earns the name “Mad Dog” and lives to regret it. 
    Denizens of the shadows who live outside the law—from the desolate meth labs of the Ozark Mountains to the dog-fighting rings of Detroit to the lavish Los Angeles mansions of the rich and famous—the characters in Love and Other Wounds all thirst for something seemingly just beyond their reach. Some are on the run, pursued by the law or propelled relentlessly forward by a dangerous past that is disturbingly close. Others are searching for a semblance of peace and stability, and even love, in a fractured world defined by seething violence and ruthless desperation. All are bruised, pushed to their breaking point and beyond, driven to extremes they never imagined. 
    Crackling with cinematic energy, raw and disquieting yet filled with pathos and a darkly vital humor, Love and Other Wounds is an unforgettable debut from an electrifying new voice.

    “. . . a beautifully wrought hymn of praise to readers and book-lovers in the most sacred of places, the libraries where we find both.” —Cassandra King, author of the best-selling novels The Sunday Wife 
    WHEN ADELE COVINGTON becomes an author in her sixties, she goes on a book tour to speak to the Friends of the Library groups in ten small towns in her home state of Mississippi. Chasing her personal demons through the Christ-haunted South of her childhood, Adele befriends an eclectic group of wounded people and decides to tell their stories. From Eupora to Meridian, from a budding artist with an abusive husband to a seven-year-old with a rare form of cancer, each story contains elements of hope and healing and honors the heart, soul, and history of the Magnolia State.

    E. W. Farnsworth's westerns continue the unique vision of his earlier stories, only with expanded scope and characters.  Forgotten historical tales are resurrected here. often with the assistance of memory figures who put their own spin on what they relate.  The frontier Arizona Territory, with its shifting population and lawlessness, contains the remnants of the failed Confederate succession's leadership in "The Thirteen Apostles" while "The Black Bear of Payson" tells of a gritty frontier woman's heroism against tribulations fighting the largest black bear ever.  "Metamorphoses" suggests the mythic transmogrification of individuals as they are absorbed into the western landscape.  Fanciful adaptations of current nineteenth-century events form stories like, "Arizona Exposition of 1855" and "The Bloodless Dodge City War," and fictional battles in critical passes are central to "Pass to Lemmon Mountain" and "Fighting Through Apache Pass" wherein Farnsworth recounts the bloody difficulties of the so-called Indian Wars.  Farnsworth tells ghost stories of the old west in "Ghost Rider" and "Ghost of the Vulture Mine," also known as "The Varmint Man."  Myths are blended into "The Woman Who Became a Triceratops" and "Fastest Gun in the Games," both of which play subtle games with history.  Throughout this eminently readable collection, Farnsworth's wit and allusiveness sport with intelligent readers' minds inviting their participation in his recreations of cowhand reality.
